Kevin De Bruyne has heaped praise on Jack Grealish and revealed the conversations he’s had with Manchester City teammates about the Aston Villa captain.
Widely regarded as Aston Villa’s best player and one of the top midfielders in the Premier League, Grealish recently shone in his side’s 7-2 demolition of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
The Aston Villa captain was controversially left out of the side to face De Bruyne and Belgium in the Uefa Nations League on Sunday, but that didn’t stop the Manchester City talisman from praising his counterpart.
“I rate him very highly,” De Bruyne said.
“He’s somebody I mentioned before, talking to the teammates at City, in a random conversation.
“In England they talked about creative problems in midfield, but he brings that to a team. He deserves a shot.”

Grealish should’ve been the sane replacement.

I don’t think £80m is that expensive considering his age and talent. That would’ve been £30m + Sané which wouldn’t have been bad at all. He’s certainly faster than Gundogan and Gundogan is pretty slow.

Lol. He’s the best choice cos he’s cheaper? We need competition for sterling and we are talking about him being young….
